Arrive at Calgary airport where you are met and transferred to your cosy, contemporary hotel, steps from the quaint streets and vibrant nightlife of downtown Banff. The next day, take a half-day tour of Banff, visiting local landmarks and learning about its history. You’ll also have the opportunity to scour the World Heritage Site of Banff National Park for deer, bighorn sheep, elk and other distinctive Canadian Rocky Mountains wildlife.

Transfer by coach to your historic chateau-style luxury hotel on the shores of Lake Louise. If you arrive early, take advantage of the hotel facilities or explore the natural playground that surrounds the property. It’s possible to ski, snowboard, take a snowmobile tour or even go ice skating.
On Day 5, enjoy a fun-filled day at the Ice Magic Festival, where you’ll have the chance to admire the works of talented ice carvers from all over the world. Ask questions, watch the artists at work and take as many photos as your heart desires.
The whole of Day 6 is yours to experience the many activities and attractions Lake Louise has to offer.
